Somic shrunk the driver size in their flagships too and people state that it's still an improvement over the previous generation.

Who's obsessed with anything?

 

In my experience bigger drivers almost always perform better than smaller ones for offerings in the budget segment.

The older models like PRO80 from Takstar and MH463 from Somic have been around for a long while. Since their initial release, lots have changed in the headphone world. The Chinese manufacturers had their share of progress too, so I guess they managed to decrease the driver size in their flagships and still make them an upgrade over the previous generation. There are no reviews about the new Takstar models yet, but I read some impression posts here on Head-Fi from owners of the V1 and V2 from Somic, and they state that it is an upgrade over the MM163 and MH463, though the driver size was decreased in both.

I'm sorry but I don't agree on this. If what you're saying was correct there should be a trend towards smaller elements in full sized headphones and I haven't seen anything that supports this so far.

I'm still looking forward to impressions on the new Takstar models though, as well as the replacement for HD600 with 30 mm drivers wink.gif
